Do not take anything as being forever,
because forever is only as long as today.
Know that the people who are the richest are not those who have the most,
but those who need the least.
That we are at our strongest when life is at its worst,
and at our weakest when life no longer offers a challenge.
That it is wiser not to expect, but to hope,
for in expecting you ask for disappointment,
whereas in hoping you invite surprise.
That unhappiness doesn’t come from not having something you want,
but from the lack of something inside that you need.
That there are things to hold and things to let go,
and letting go doesn’t mean you lose,
but that you acquire that which has been waiting around the corner.
Most of all…
Remember to use your dreams as a way of knowing yourself better,
and as an inspiration to reach for your star.
